Kruger and Yelchin Attached to Romantic Comedy 5 TO 7

Stars sign on for Victor Levin-directed rom-com.

Diane Kruger (‘The Host,’ ‘‘Inglourious Basterds’) and Anton Yelchin (‘Star Trek,’ ‘Fright Night’) have been announced as the leads of writer-director Victor Levin’s romantic comedy ‘5 to 7.’

Penned by Levin (‘Mad Men,’ ‘Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!’), the screenplay is set in New York, where an aspiring novelist (Yelchin) has a cinq à sept affair with the beautiful wife of a French diplomat (Kruger). Cultures, world views, personal ethics and dietary preferences clash as love deepens, with remarkable results.

Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn of Mockingbird Pictures and The Solution Entertainment Group’s co-founders and partners, Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel will produce.

“Vic Levin’s script has us in tears — we’re just not sure if it’s from laughing or crying. We’re excited about the grace and intelligence that he, Diane and Anton will bring to their interpretations of his beautiful story,” said Curtis and Lynn.

“This is just a great script with a wonderful cast attached and filmmakers involved who have a fantastic track record. It exactly matches our criteria of offering only the very best in independent filmmaking to our clients. The response to the project has been overwhelming,” said Wilson and Nestel.
